The bons temps will roll into Pompano Beach come Monday, December 7, with the opening of The French Quarter Bar & Grill, a moderately priced N'awlins-style eatery from former Tarpon Bend general manager Gene Beach and local chef about town Michael Buterbaugh.
The Quarter adds to Broward's meager stock of Cajun/Creole restaurants, dishing such Big Easy staples as jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, and gumbo, along with such all-American faves as crab cakes, burgers, and wings. It will be open daily for lunch and dinner, with prices ranging from $7 to $12 for apps and $10 to $25 for entrees.
Look for live music on weekends and acoustic music on the covered outdoor patio, plus a 2 a.m. closing time to wring every last second out of those bons temps.
